Our Mission Statement:

The Asian American Women’s Association recognizes the need for a unified, open community at Harvard concerned with the issues facing women of Asian descent in Western society. The purpose of the Asian American Women’s Association is to address these needs by creating a collective voice and promoting the prominence and concerns of the female Asian-American population, both within the community and without, particularly through regular discussion of pertinent issues. In addition to involving AAWA membership, the actions and activities of the organization will be directed outwards to the Harvard population and our greater community. Through regular meetings, alumnae outreach and combined efforts with other student groups, AAWA will inspire action for the cause of Asian American women at Harvard and beyond.
